The web 2.0 world has brought many new and exciting ways to communicate with your friends online – without speaking a word. Twitter is the new social networking buzz; it allows users to send a sentence or two about what they are doing at that moment, using their moble phone, instant message or by entering it into an online form on the Twitter site. Here is the help and lingo page that has more info on how Twitter works. You can also learn juicy tidbits at the Twitter blog. The privacy features allow you to either add your twitter to the public timeline or to the friends that you invite. If you wonder “Why everyone’s talking about Twitter“check out the Time magazine article. The article brings up the lingo “microblogging or moblogging” for what users are doing with Twitter; it is a quick way to do a micro-micro blog post (two sentences) for those who do not have time to blog.
I first heard about Twitter at BlogHer Business 07 last week. I knew I had to try it, so I set up a profile but then was shy to start. I wondered what I should talk about. Then blogger celeb GraceD invited me to be her friend (which I was honored), so I decided to do my first twitter to her. What do you know, I am blogging about microblogging.
